A few days ago, rumours indicated that Huawei would unveil flagship smartphone P9 in the first week of April. Now, the company has formally announced that it is hosting an event in London April 6.

"Change the way you see the world, save the date – 06.04.16," the press invitation (courtesy, Mobile Bulgaria) reads. The cryptic invite doesn't give away any specific details of the device's name, but the graphic design "#OO" and "Change the way you see the world" hints that the device's marquee feature will be its camera.

Recent reports of Huawei P9 have claimed that it will house a 12MP based dual-lens Leica optics camera with dual-tone LED flash and laser autofocus.

Other expected features of the upcoming Huawei phone include 5.2 inch full HD display on the front, Huawei's proprietary HiSilicon Kirin 950 processor, 3GB RAM, 32GB storage and a 3,900mAh battery.

Word on the street is that Huawei P9 will be accompanied by another higher-end model tentatively titled P9 Premium, which is said to boast top-notch processor and high-capacity memory. It is expected to house Huawei's HiSilicon Kirin 955 SoC (System-on-Chip), sumptuous 4GB RAM, 64GB/128GB storage and a USB Type C port.

As of now, Huawei is yet to respond to the P9 speculations.
